of the defense spending cuts and we're not going to fold the debt ceiling increase into this deal, and i think the white house was very taken aback by the meagerness of that offer. and so there's a different tone. but if the substance is going to be enough and the time is short, it's really going to be complicated to get this done by the end of the year. >> mosark, if the debt ceiling not wrapped up, the president is not going for it. he does not want to face this twice. >> it's impossible to imagine, that's such a key piece for the white house, just not to have this fight again. it's going to have to be a joint whip operation in the house. i think there will be a period from the time there's a deal amongst the leaders in the bipartisan leadership in the white house, there will be a period from then until it gets passage in the house that will look like where are the votes going to possibly come from. but if stan hoyer and john boehner are willing to do a deal that they can both support, i think they can get to a majority in the house. the key -- the real trick is the two-part thing or maybe t

against israel because their defenses against short-range missiles, in this case, with the iron dome system, but also with the patriot system against possible iranian long-range missiles is going to take leverage away from iran. keep pulling the world together against iran. that's the source of the problem. >> what about the gaza cease-fire? when do hostilities begin again? when does fighting begin again? how much time has been purchased? >> if egypt will take a strong role here to stop the tunnels from being used for weaponry getting into gaza, this could lead to a real plus. >> you know, i read something this week, robert keegan wrote, this is not a question of american influence in the region, it's american interests to take on all of these difficult problems. you talk about syria, the oppression there. conn condoleezza rice arguing in an op-ed this morning in "the washington post" that the u.s. has to do something, yes, it's risky, but there has to be more involvement. the breakdown of the middle east state system is a graver risk than the risks of getting involved in syria. iran
everybody but it is major, massive defense cut, defense cuts which the defense department is warning you can't do. it is payroll tax cut. it is jobless benefits will be cut. reimbursement rates for doctors who take medicare patients with the so-called doc fix. that will jeopardize potential care according to dr. seeing he will if. there are all sorts of things, it is easy to say, let it happen but, you know, it is hard to believe they will find the split call will they haven't been able to find because we start to dangle off the cliff as opposed to just approaching it. am i wrong? >> lawmakers do love to do nothing. they're very good at that. in this case doing nothing has some appeal. the consequences, speaker of the house john boehner and the president both know what happens in the future for them in what they're doing will be made much harder if they can't demonstrate they have the will now to at least get a framework deal together. that is just the way that that is. but the problem that they face is that very liberal democrats and very conservative republicans are going to look at them a

that i have observed that works and is helpful for the department of the defense. talking about a strategy, a broader view, and then through the report get into the details. in the congress, we have all these different committees that claimed some part of the jurisdiction. i had a simple solution. pete, we need some energy legislation and leadership. good luck. every now and then, i would get into his territory and he would teach me a lesson about how far i could get into energy policy because he would come to me and say we have to do this differently. one of the questions i know people will ask -- why are you doing it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy
security and medicare, make some defense cuts if you have to but we'd rather just see the rich get taxed and the near rich get taxed if we have to do that. >> the numbers do not add up, the left is being fundamentally dishonest. they are saying you don't have to cut social security or medicare or medicaid to get the deficit down, all you've got to do is tax the rich some more. they are recklessly suggesting that we go deeper and deeper and deeper into debt heading towards bankruptcy. the numbers, megyn are stunning. we have an unfunded liability for medicare of $42 trillion. an unfunded liability for social security of $20 trillion. and a further 20 trillion for unfunded pensions for federal employees, that adds up to $86 trillion which are committed to pay in the future and the money we do not have. therefore, you cannot just tax the rich to get rid of the deficit. you simply can't do that. the numbers don't add up. megyn: chris, what do you make of this, the president is now going to go out on what looks like sort of like a campaign stop on friday to pennsylvania. he already had this m
, is this administration hesitant to embrace missile defense for the u.s. why wouldn't we be more forward than we are? >> it's very important question. i think you have seen in this administration a concern about offending in the case of missile defense for us offending the russians when we had plans to put missile defense systems in czech area and poll and. what we are seeing is larger issue is gaza versus israel. it's important to remind people that israelis withdrew from gaza and handed the territory over to the palestinians. so when you hear people saying the problem here is the israelis aren't well to give up land for peace, what we're seeing on the screen and what we are seeing unfold the palestinians don't want hamas does not want to live in peace. they have no concerns at all about killing israeli civilians or putting their own missile launchers where their own civilians will be killed. this president's policy of withdrawing from the world, retreating from the region has put iran in a position where they, in fact, feel emboldened. we saw today reports of the international atomic agency the he
'll also hear from the spokesperson for the israeli defense forces, and the leader of hamas, plus, the reporters on the ground, and we'll look at what transpired over the last 24 hours. it is remarkable there was a cease-fire this hour, when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a look. at mid-day, no sign of a truce yet when a city bus is bombed in tel aviv. at least two dozen were wounded. israeli police say hamas left the bombs on the bus. only one exploded. hamas praised the attack, but the group didn't claim responsibility. farther south, an israeli home was hit by a rocket, room after room, left in ruins. according to the military, more than 60 rockets were fired from gaza today, with more than 40 landed in israel. the others were intercepted. across the border in gaza, the explosions throughout the morning and afternoon. a 100 strikes confirmed by the israelis today before the cease-fire. the sky covered in smoke, the city on edge. cnn's a away -- arwa damon has more. >> reporter: there is a bouquet lying there amidst the rubble. it appears in this case, the tar
. israel's missile defense systems greatly improved, the iron dome successfully intercepting hundreds of in coming rockets, but, israel is facing a better armed hamas, that has the backing of a new islamist government in egypt. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states, and the obama administration. and, new obstacles in creating a genuine israeli-palestinian peace process. we'll take all of that up here tonight, with admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet and also, president obama wants more in the $1.5 trillion in tax hikes, but he has no plan -- or announced cuts in spending, why those tax hikes don't add up to anything meaningful and we'll talk with the ceo of cke restaurants, andy puzder and says, tax rates will stifle economic growth and our favorite doctors are here, to psychoanalyze the scandal that brought down the head of the cia. we are delighted to be joined, now, by the admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet. it is always good to have you with us. thanks for being here. >> nice to be back with yo
's national defense headquarters. a spokesman for the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says this is a terrorist act. this as 100 israeli air strikes have killed more than 27 palestinians. the death toll in eight days there up to 137. the secretary of state hillary clinton is finishing up those direct talks this morning with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas. that's happening in ramallah on the west bank. and netanyahu, the prime minister, in jerusalem, another conversation she's having. now she goes to cairo where she's meeting with the egyptian president mursi. mrs. clinton making it clear that she is not interested in a quick fix in gaza. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability, and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> cnn reporters flanking the middle east today to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the crisis in gaza and in jerusalem and in israel. ben wedeman is in gaza city. frederick pleitgen is in ashkelon city. we begin with sara sidner at the scene of that bu
severe military action, and perhaps we will need to do so. joining us now is tim mak, defense reporter for political. he comes to us tonight from washington, d.c. tim thank you so much for being here. >> thank you, governor. >> jennifer: how important was it to regional stability that this deal was brokered by both the u.s. and egypt's muslim brotherhood. >> it's extremely important. the question is how durable this ceasefire will be. every day israelis living in the area around the gaza strip don't believe it's durable. tomorrow morning the schools in two of the towns within range, they are going to be close, and the reason is people aren't sure hamas will keep to its end of the bargain. >> jennifer: obviously those rockets out of the gaza today are some indication of that. this is not a permanent solution, but how are both sides spinning it? >> sure. there the israel standpoint they are saying this conflict has allowed us to demonstrate the resiliency of this iron dome defense system. gaza has been able to say we have been able to fight off a lot of attacks from isr
service and his sacrifice in defense of freedom, we have a responsibility to do what we can. i ask every member of this house to join me in honoring this american hero, this great american patriot, by supporting this legislation which will designate the postal facility in macomb township, michigan thearks lance corporal tan thatny a. dilisio clinton-macomb carrier annex. he was survived by his father, by his mother who recently passed away, his brothers, his sisters. we honor them for sharing this person who they loved so much with all of us. we cannot remove their sorrow for the loss of anthony but we can show them that the spire nation honors his service and sacrifice and of course the motto of the united states marine corps is semper fidelis, always faithful. faith to feel their duty, faithful to freedom and liberty, faith to feel this great nation. anthony was a true marine and was always faithful. i ask every member of the body to join me in honoring this great patriot, lance corporal anthony dilisio. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from pennsylvania. >>
in the streets of gaza city. it is fragile. israeli defense forces say there are five rockets launched from gaza since the cease-fire went into effect. and prime minister benjamin netanyahu's statement was cautious. he said he was willing to give the egyptian cease-fire a chance before there is a need to use greater force. not exactly a ringing endorsement. here's the key thing, while the united states got involved with a visit from hillary clinton this deal was not brokered by the usa. >> this is a critical moment for the region. egypt's new government is assuming the responsibility and leadership that has long made this country a corner stone of regional stability and peace. >> seemingly unexpected leader was egypt's mohamed morsi, a man we've seen at rallies where egyptians chan egyptians chanted we are hamas. it's an impressive feat and the first time that israel has ever negotiated with an islamist government. but there are some shady things about the deal. according to an israeli newspaper, neither side officially signed penned to paper on the cease-fire agreement which raise sometimes que
? >> the jeep ad. that was the biggest one. they spent the last 14 days of the election on the defense. day after day they had to answer for that. it put them on the defense for a long time because it was not true. >> the flip side of that, you put the events back in spring, defining him. a lot of regret among republicans about how early you define him. the kind of campaign -- why was that a brilliant insight? >> at the time it was risky because of super pacs. we were going to spend a majority of our money in the summer and not of the fall. we were going to get out spend because we believed that late tv did not matter as much. it turns out we were right. >> based on what you know about the nation's mood and geography, everything you learned, what republican candidate would have had the best shot? >> that is a good question. we were honest about our concerns about jon huntsman. i think he would have been a tough general election candidate. as someone who helped manage his confirmation, he is a good guy. we looked at his profile and thought he would have been difficult. >> and you thought by
with the brutality of the regime, they have to engage in what they call self-defense calling for a no-fly zone, and so the latest slogans in the demonstrations in syria started asking for international intervention. it was around this time that the syria national council was formed, whose mandate was to actually bring help to defend the civilians who were protesting. the reasons -- the main reason the syria did not want to back up has to do what happened to them in the 80s when the syrian regime brutally recrushedded that rebellion centered in the city of hamas and killed, according to the claims of the regimes, 38,000 people in a 27-day campaign in the months of february in 1982. the people felt if they back off, they would be punished because in the 80s, after 82, the next following years, they punishedded them collectively, about 80,000 forcibly disappeared people whose files are still not closed, and thousands and thousands of prisoners of conscious. the syrians felt they have to continue at any cost. when help doesn't come, the idea of defense formed in the movement itself, and so those s
its people. >> eliot: as always, israeli self-defense has severe critics including a one-time regional party, turkey. turkish prime minister morsi represents an islamist political party has condemned them saying israel is committing terrorist attacks. for more, i'm joined by p.j. crowley, former assistant secretary of state for public affairs for president obama. former special assistant for national security affairs to president president clinton and a professor at george washington university. thank you for joining us, professor. >> pleasure, eliot always. >> eliot: it seems so tantalizingly closer. a cease-fire was about to be announced. you've been through the process before. can you infer or suggest or understand what would be a sticking point at this late moment? >> part of this is probably one or both of the parties haven't got man they need out of current crisis. i strongly suspect it is probably on the hamas side where they're looking for assurances that if there is a cease-fire, there will be
there is the iron dome missile defense system. just seconds before we went on the air, there was a rocket attack. the iron dome battery behind me fired at least two of these interceptors. in total today, there have been at least 130 rockets that have been fired into israel by the militants in gaza. one of these rockets traveled as far as tel aviv suburb. it hit an apartment building there. it did extensive damage. there were no serious injuries. but this is the furthest hit yet when it comes to an israeli city. what many of the residents of israel say, they do not want to see a ground incursion when it comes to these rocket attacks, they say they must come to an end. listen. >> cannot go to the job. our life is upside down. scarey. it has to stop. >> there were also air raid sirens in jerusalem today. one of the rockets landed outside that city. ironically in a palestinian village. >> shep: david lee miller live in israel where the military warned civilians in gaza to avoid certain areas during this conflict. many of the people in the tightly controlled territory say there is no place to go. a l
can legally marry. marriage is usually a state law matter but under the federal defense of marriage act, a law passed in 1996, the federal government does not recognize those marriages. in that situation, a gay couple who is legally married in boston, cannot file a joint tax return. they cannot get benefits under social security for their spouse like another merit couple would. a series of lawsuits have been filed a federal appeals court in boston and new york ruled tartabull law is unconstitutional. it denies gays and lesbians equal protection under the law. they are legally married. the court said they deserve the same legal rights. the obama administration would not defend that law. the house republicans appointed john clement. many of those cases are under appeal and they will surely decide one of those cases this spring host: is there one more likely than the other? guest: that is an inside baseball question. the problem that arose is that elena kagan was the solicitor general when some of those cases were beginning and she mentioned at her confirmation hearings that she had pa
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
